Call for papers for ABA/AALS joint conference this Fall in DC

I have been really intrigued and impressed by special criminal justice programs that have been put together by the ABA each fall over the last few years. To its credit, the ABA has made a special effort in these events to connect criminal justice practitioners and academics (as evidenced by the speakers brought together at last year's event).  Consequently, I am pleased to be able to promoted this "Call for Papers — Criminal Justice" in conjunction with this year's planned event:

On Oct. 25-26, 2012, the ABA and the AALS will present a joint conference on criminal justice at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C.  The first event of the conference, on the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 25, is a workshop for scholarly papers relating to criminal justice.  All papers on criminal law, criminal procedure, or criminal justice topics are welcome. 

Participants will present their work in a roundtable format, and abstracts or drafts will be shared among presenters and discussants in advance of the workshop.  Workshop presenters must also attend the criminal justice panels on Friday, Oct. 26. This is an excellent opportunity for academics at any stage of their careers, or those who would like to transition to academia, to workshop pieces at an early stage of development or obtain feedback on more developed pieces.  Workshop presenters will be responsible for their own travel and hotel costs, and will be required to pay the conference registration fee.

To apply to workshop a paper, please email an abstract of your paper of no more than 500 words to both Michael Mannheimer at mannheimem1@nku.edu and Laurent Sacharoff at lsacharo@uark.edu by Aug. 15, 2012.  Space is limited and presenters will be chosen by members of the organizing committee.
